The research activities conducted at DLR’s site in Bremen focus on space, aeronautics and maritime security. The Bremen site supports the region’s potential for innovation. DLR Bremen’s first institute was founded in 2007. Since then, DLR has been continuously expanding its research topics at this site and has also been represented by the Virtual Product House in the ECOMAT innovation centre since 2019.

The Bremen site’s scientific activities are integrated into the wider DLR network, and also form part of national and international research partnerships. Thanks to its location at the Bremen Technology Park in the north of the city and its site at Bremen Airport City in the south, DLR is able to work in close cooperation with both science and industry. DLR also makes its research infrastructure available for collaborative use by project partners, in an effort to support the transfer of scientific and technical expertise. DLR Technology Marketing promotes close networking with partners from business and industry associations, with a view to creating new products and forward-looking workplaces together.

The Bremen DLR_School_Lab gives children and young people the chance to discover the fascinating world of research and technology in a hands-on way. Here, pupils can conduct experiments that directly relate to current projects in aeronautics, space, transport and energy. DLR supervises Bachelor's and Master's theses and also supports scientists with doctorates. At the Bremen site, DLR also offers training opportunities to become an electronics technician for equipment and systems.
